Are A Quarter Of The UK Government's Databases Illegal?
from the that's-how-it-works dept
Governments keep trying to build bigger and bigger databases — and almost every such database eventually gets abused in ways that harm privacy rights. One of the most aggressive governments in building such databases has been the UK — and a new study of such databases has found that approximately a quarter of the UK government’s databases are illegal in that they don’t do nearly enough to protect individual’s privacy and civil rights. Of course, these sorts of things don’t get any attention until it’s too late — and there’s a big enough abuse or leak to really lead to public attention.

I’m glad I live in the U.S., where our government understands and respects people’s privacy…. Oh wait…
